How to Remove the Control Panel From the Whirlpool Duet Sport

Whirlpool Duet Sport washers and dryers are a line of front-loading residential appliances. Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machines are energy efficient, and have an oversized tub for washing large loads of laundry. Both the washing machine and dryer are controlled by a digital control panel located at the top of the machines. If the control panel malfunctions, the machine will not start. If necessary, the control panel can be removed, and a new control panel can be installed.
